LIFE BLOOM THERAPY AND SUPERVISION
Blair Rhodes, LCSW-S | Life Bloom Wellness, LLC
In therapy, I help people tackle big life decisions and changes, overcome depression, and manage anxiety.
It's time to feel good about who you are, the decisions you make, and how you live your life.
In supervision, I help LMSWs hone their expertise as clinicians and navigate the nuances of social work practice, rules, regulations, social justice, and ethics.
Secure Telehealth Psychotherapy for Individuals in Texas.
Specializing in Life changes, Anxiety, and Depression
Life can be overwhelming, complicated, and messy. Relationships are not easy. It feels like everyone else has it all figured out and maybe you don't seem to be as far along as you think you should be. You're feeling stuck in the past or anxious about the future. Making changes feels scary and you have no idea where to start. You might be feeling hopeless, scared, or overwhelmed. The anxiety can feel crushing or you may notice that you just really aren't coping well with life.
In therapy, I can help you learn to manage the anxious thoughts and hopeless feelings. We can sift through everything to find clarity in your decisions and find ways to help you feel more confident in yourself and your future. Feeling seen and heard in therapy can be such a relieving experience and that can pave the way for so many other good things to come about. Doing therapy online makes it possible to fit therapy into the busiest of schedules and you can access care from anywhere in Texas!
I am from a small Texas town, so I know what the stigma of accessing mental health care can feel like. And now that I live in a large city, I also know how challenging it can be to find time for therapy. Online therapy can be an excellent solution! I want to remove barriers and help you work through the tough stuff in life so that you can feel empowered to live a life you love.

Affordable Group supervision offered virtually for LMSWs anywhere in Texas.
The process of completing clinical supervision can be intimidating, but I strive to make it a rewarding and educational experience.
I have experience working a psychiatric hospital, providing out-patient services in various roles at a community mental health clinic, as well as establishing and sustaining my own private practice. As an LMSW, it is important to have a supervisor who understands your roles and responsibilities in these settings.
Together we will explore all the nuance, rules, regulations, ethics, and social justice issues that may arise in your therapeutic work with clients. My mission is for my supervisees to successfully complete supervision with a sense of purpose and confidence in their skills and abilities as clinical social workers.

ABOUT BLAIR RHODES, LCSW-S
Life Bloom Wellness Owner and Therapist
Board Approved Clinical Supervisor
Hello! My name is Blair Rhodes and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing psychotherapy in Texas.
I have over 12 years of experience providing mental health care. My Bachelor's degree is in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Walden University. I started out working in inpatient psychiatric care and then in a community mental health non-profit. I have experience with diagnosing and treating a variety of mental health disorders, including severe mental illnesses. My passion is therapy and helping people thrive.
My training is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness techniques, and Solutions-Focused Therapy. I regularly use aspects of Positive Psychology in my work as these strategies have the benefit of improving over-all well being. I don't just want you to survive your life. I want you to thrive and bloom!
Since I am from a small Texas town, I understand the stigma that can get in the way of seeking therapy when everyone knows everything about everyone. Living in a large city now, I can also relate to the barriers of a busy schedule, traffic, and parking that get in the way of finding time for therapy. Life can be complicated and messy. We can work together to untangle it all and find the path for you to grow and have resilience across all areas of life.
In my own life, I do my best to practice what I preach and create space for self-care. I am married and have three awesome daughters. I get really excited about the things I love (Doctor Who or Harry Potter, anyone?). I love crafting, getting outside, and checking out live music whenever I can. And as a Texas Ex, I'm a huge Longhorns fan.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS TELEHEALTH PSYCHOTHERAPY?
I use a secure video platform that you will have access to once all intake forms are signed and insurance/billing information has been confirmed. You will need a smartphone or computer with internet in order to access the platform for sessions. When you're ready to get scheduled, I will send you a link to create an account and sign all the appropriate intake forms. At the time of your appointment, you will log in for a video session where we will meet face to face online.
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE OR OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
I accept Aetna, United Healthcare, Friday Health, and Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance plans. I do encourage you to call to verify your mental health benefits prior to the first session so you know what to expect to be charged for each session.
Private pay and insurance co-pays will be due at the time of service.
Currently, I do not have any sliding fee spots available but please check back as this is subject to change.
DO YOU HAVE A PHYSICAL LOCATION?
There is currently no availability for in-person sessions at a physical location at this time. All therapy sessions are conducted via telehealth. It is my mission to remove some of the barriers to mental health care for individuals across Texas.
WHAT IS THE CANCELATION POLICY?
Because you will receive an appointment time reserved just for you, I require at least 24 hours notice in advance if you need to miss an appointment. A fee of $85.00 will be charged if 24 hours notice is not provided for a cancelation or missed appointment.
